It seems like this is the innexpensive unit to get for my 50D. anyone know where the best place is to get one now that Teemspeed doesnt seem to have any anymore???? Id rather not purchase from overseas as I want it before the 4th of July...

any new versions out as of late?

OK so even searching ebay for "phottix strato" yields no results. Was it taken off the market? Is there another one I should consider?

"Phottix C8"

Apparently nobody calls it "Strato"

OK thanks, it looks like theres no way to get it quickly within the states via ebay.

I should have thought about this further in advance.

Try a general web search for "Phottix Cleon". There might be a USA distributor somewhere selling under that name. I saw another listing using that term but they too were outside the USA.

cool thanks, pretty pricey compared to others though. Now I gotta determine which one is best, IR or radio.... they both seem to have the same functions.

on second thought, the 50D doesnt support IR right??? So ill have to get the strato or plato, any advice?

Get the C8 and be done with it.

Ok, I do however like the flash trigger option of the strato though.

the problem still exists of availability with the cleon too, they arent here in the US.

FYI: Also sold as a Calumet Radio Trigger for $75 a set. (Stratos ll is their $100 set at Calumet) I got a set recently and plan to get 2 more since they are on sell right now. Fits my needs and budget well. Very impressed by the build quality!
